    Love this! “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” No matter how dark the circumstances, our light can always make a difference. Great post!

      Hi, Alicia!
      You are right! Our light can always make a difference for someone that we may not even realize is struggling in the darkness! Thanks for sharing!

    Absolutely love this! I totally agree with you when you say life is meant for living. Today is my last day at my corporate job as I was just soo unhappy and I am now taking the plunge to actually get into something I enjoy! Life is too short to waste time on meaningless things that don’t light up our souls. Thank you for sharing.

    In a world that thrives on bad news lets share the “Good News!” This is so true! And because the world is so focused on the negative and the bad, when we choose to be the light and show love and kindness it is a stark contrast! It becomes unavoidable to notice. We then get to express how we are able to be positive! Thank you for the read. God Bless!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Melissa! I love what you wrote, “It becomes unavoidable to notice.” I agree when we walk in the light of Christ people are attracted not by anything we do, but what He is doing through us. I’m glad you enjoyed my post. Many blessings to you!

    I love this post! I love what you wrote, “Life isn’t always happy or problem free, but it is meant to be lived.” Indeed it is! We are all called to shine our lights in this dark weary land.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Keisha! Thank You for your encouraging words. The world may be dark, but when the light of Christ shines through each of us His light changes everything.

  6. Andrea says:

    God calls us to be a light in the midst of a whole lot of darkness in the world!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Andrea!
      Yes, God calls us to be that light and what an opportunity each of us has to be the light for Christ! Thanks for always letting your light shine my friend!

    I’ve always wanted to go to one of those lantern festivals; they are so beautiful! Yes, we need to shine the light of Christ’s love into people’s lives around us.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Susan! You must try to go! I know you love to travel and I love reading about your experiences. It was a beautiful experience and one I will never forget!

  8. Amanda Elize says:

    Amen! Such a beautiful message to spread! Thank you for being a light and encouraging others to do the same!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Amanda! Thank You for your words of encouragement! The world can be a dark place, but I am so thankful that Jesus is truly the light which shines everywhere. I’m thankful for the life application lessons He teaches each of us on a daily basis if we take the time to look. Blessings to you!

    Thar video is amazing! Gave me the chills. God is so good :). I know times have been so tough, but God is bigger and He has a bigger plan for us than here and now.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, JJ! I could not agree with you more! Our God is bigger than the box many people try to put Him in and limit His capabilities by placing human standards upon Him. He has so much more for us! We have a supernatural God who can do anything! I had chills the night of the event too! It was amazing!

    Having a good attitude and being the “light” so speak is infectious… and you never know who you come across through the day that needs a little bit of that in their life!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Amber! I agree being the “light” is infectious! We all need His light to guide us through every day. Sometimes, we need to be the light and other times we need to see the light. Thank You for sharing!

  11. Alicia says:

    Wow. This spoke to my heart. Sheila, I bet you and I could be great friends! Yes, it’s time that we as believers OWN IT and decide to #bealight. And as the little song goes, don’t hide it under a bushel, but I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine….

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Alicia!
      I know we could be great friends! I love the name of your blog. It is true, what a difference a day can make. Your pictures are stunning and I love your writing. I read your story about sweet Maggie. She is absolutely precious! Her smile is a light to the world. I have added her to my prayer journal. I believe God will continue to heal and use her in great ways!

  12. Kristi says:

    How beautiful! Just seeing all those lights in the midst of darkness makes us more aware of the light we need to be!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Kristi!
      I agree being there was such an example to me about the importance of being the light. It was a very diverse crowd and really demonstrated what heaven will be like because each light represented someone. You could hear different languages around you and people of all ages enjoying this special moment.
